People have been doing the same things on computers for years. Clicking. Scrolling. Installing. Saving. With OS X Lion, Apple has challenged the accepted way of doing things by introducing new features that change the way you use a computer.
Mac OS X Lion brings Multi-Touch Gestures (that transform the way you interact with your Mac making all you do more intuitive and direct), Full-Screen Apps (systemwide multiple full-screen apps open at once), Mission Control (bird’s-eye view of everything opened and running on system), Launchpad (all the apps on MAC), Resume (restart your Mac and return to what you were doing), auto save feature, versions of your work, airdrop, new mail, and more.
Xcode is the complete toolset to build Mac OSX and iOS applications. With Xcode 4, the developers tools have been redesigned to be faster, easier to use, and more helpful. The Xcode IDE understands every detail of your project, identifies mistakes in both logic and syntax, and even fix your code for you. Xcode 4 will help you write better code for Mac OSX and iOS applications. Xcode 4 has a brand new user interface, built upon technologies that Apple itself uses to build Mac OSX and iOS, and that have produced over a quarter million Mac OS X and iOS apps.
Steve Jobs and Apple Computer (almost bankrupt at the time) making a temporary deal with Bill Gates and Microsoft. The crowd was not too happy about it. Watch the video. On April 1, 1976, Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne established a small company to sell personal computer kits hand-built by Wozniak. That company, was Apple Computer. Thirty-five years later, Apple is now the most valuable technology company in the world. Its market capitalization exceeds $317 billion, trumping longtime rival Microsoft by more than $100 billion. Apple’s iconic products sit on the desks and in the pockets of millions of people across the world.
